The Walker North Country Marathon (WNCM) may be the smallest marathon in Minnesota, but it’s big on scenery, beauty, and challenge. We have partnered with the Chippewa National Forest to bring you a race for those who love nature and would never be called “faint at heart.” The course starts in the quaint, lakeside town of Walker, Minnesota, hugging the borders of Leech Lake (the 3rd largest lake in Minnesota). After winding through the blocks of our small town, you will venture out into the forest to enjoy vibrant fall colors, the sweet smell of wildflowers and leaves changing, and the clean air of nature unsploiled.
